Since this is my last post before Christmas I’d like to start by wishing you a Merry Christmas
And hoping this Christmas enriches your life;
May each day be happy and bright,
Overflowing with pleasure and love;
May your Christmas be filled with delight.
Tonight I’d like to share some chocolate cookies I made earlier
The photos are not so great, I’m sorry
By now, most of you know I love chocolate so when I saw this recipe I knew I have to make them .
Minding my not so perfect photos, aren’t they cute? They look like they’ve come out of a box of chocolate. These bite size cookies are perfect wrapped as a gift.
Let’s make some Chocolate Candy Cookies
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 package vanilla sugar
1 egg yolk
There are two ways : or you rub the flour, cocoa and butter with your fingers or place them in a food-processor and pulse few times
Mix in the sugars and the eggs (pulse few more times)
Place the dough on your working area and knead for 1-2 minutes until it can be easily shaped in a ball.
Now, take a deep breath and shape small balls, about 11-12 grams each. I had 38 small balls.
Place the trays in the fridge (or in the garage like me) for at least 30 minutes.
Meanwhile heat the oven at 425 F.
Bake the cookies for 10 minutes until slightly risen and start to crack.
Transfer them to cooling racks.
Now, to decorate them I used around 6 oz chocolate chips (60%) and some Christmas sugars
Dip the top of the cookie in melted chocolate and sprinkle with some sugar.
At the end I melted about 1 oz white chocolate and played a little on some
a bite just for you
Merry Christmas everyone !!!
